Brisbane Roar - Newcastle Jets
Brisbane Roar have really found their feet in recent weeks, taking 10 points from a possible 15 and moving up to 4th place in the league. They were hovering just below the playoffs for long periods in the early stages of the season but they have been able to find form at the right time and their finals series place is now in their own hands. Brisbane haven’t set the world alight in the final third this season, scoring 1.14 goals per game on average but the side have been efficient in their wins. Defensively they have performed identically to their attacking output, conceding at the same rate of 1.14 goals per game but this has dropped to just 0.6 goals conceded per game over the last five matches. This game looks to be very even on paper with both sides competing well in recent weeks and being the two form sides heading into this weekend. This game is being played at a neutral venue due to the current global situation, levelling the playing field further but with both sides looking really good in attack in recent weeks we’re predicting this game sees both teams finding the net. The two sides look to close to separate however and we think this game ends in a stalemate, although both sides should have plenty of chances.Pick: Over (4,5 )
